David Blandy

Artists

David Blandy is an artist who works with the image in the digital world. He often uses himself as an anthropological subject.

In many of his films, Blandy embarks upon a personal quest for truth and authentic experience via the cultures that have shaped him, in particular mixing the styles of Eastern and Western art.

His works feature between reality and construct, using references sampled from the wide, and disparate sources that provide him a sense of self. He often draws upon alter egos to act out these tensions and reveal the complexities of the post-colonial condition.

In January 2013 Peckham Platform commissioned Blandy for an exhibition of new work. Mobile Suit Academy transformed the gallery into a futuristic environment evoking the interior of a starship travelling through distant galaxies, showing humorous and poignant animated stories set against the backdrop of an alternative Peckham.

His work was also part of the 2016 Peckham Platform Retrospective exhibition, a timeline of all 20 artists commissions realised by Peckham Platform between 2010 – 2016.
